Little Squigglers messy play and creative classes provide a fun way for your under 5 to grow in confidence and develop new skills. Our pre-school classes provide a perfect opportunity for children to experience sensory activities you may not want to embark on at home.
Each week in Little Squigglers Toddler classes, children (and parents) have fun being immersed in activities based around familiar themes whilst learning new skills in a safe and secure environment. Messy play for babies or toddlers is not only great fun but is a perfect way for your child to learn new skills through sensory play and sensory learning, as well as learning to share, make new friends, develop greater confidence and independence, and increase language and communication skills.
Parents / carers work alongside their child, happy exploring lots of messy things like goo, gloop and gunge, whilst perhaps creating fantastic works of art and, most importantly, enjoy being creative together.
In every class, the children are immersed in fun activities based around familiar themes which may be linked with stories and rhymes. As well as experiencing different sensations, the children join in activities with other children when they are ready, and learn greater social skills as they play.
At each class children have the opportunity to create 3 quality pieces of art work to take home. These are linked to the theme of the class and are different every week- from paper plate lions to salad spinner snails we have a huge variety of crafts! We know that all children are unique and are individuals in their own right, so our classes allow children to explore and create at their own pace – and it is a great way for your little ones to prepare for nursery / school life as they become confident and familiar with routines such as adult led activities, free-play time and quiet story times.
Yes, it’s a great learning opportunity – quite often for parents and carers as well as the toddlers; but above all it is fun and time to enjoy together with lots of giggles and laughter – and one of the best bits after all this fun activity and messy play? We clear up all the mess!
